Well my first month of clomid was a bust but I was expecting it because first of all I ovulated 2 days early, wasn't expecting that, as well as coming down with a horrible stomach virus right on and around ovulation time so our bd schedule was way off not to mention I couldn't enjoy the bding at all because I was so sick to my stomach. So while my plans were to try IUI in January if the first round of clomid alone didn't work, plans have changed, I am going to give clomid alone one more shot since the circumstances for the first try were bad, if it doesn't work this next cycle, we will be moving forward with IUI in February but I will admit I am terrified of forking over the $$ and having it fail, I don't know how I'll be able to handle that, especially knowing how many other things that $400 can go for around our house that would be well spent. I am a bit down and out today, one of my best friends announced her pregnancy at dinner last night and while she and her husband are the sweetest, most well deserved people to be becoming parents, it still hurt because we've been trying so long, I just want to be happy for my loved ones pregnant around me but its so hard

I'm sorry it didn't work out. We are moving on to IUI in January and I'm nervous about it as well....getting the timing right, paying out of pocket (not to mention as soon as we do IUI we no longer have any fertility insurance coverage). But I feel like it's just what we have to do...unless I miraculously get pregnant this cycle. I know are chances are better than what they were a few months ago, but still much lower than a "normal" couple.
And I totally feel you on just wanting to be able to be happy for pregnant friends. It sounds so stupid and selfish, but I can't remember the last time someone announced their pregnancy and I actually felt excited and happy for them rather than sorry for myself that I just can't get pregnant.
